Begining in the 2020-2021 school year, each of our students in grades K-5 will be issued a Chromebook laptop for their use at school and at home.
Having access to a device not only supports distance learning, but it helps our students practice important success skills that will help them make meaningful contributions to the world. Students have anytime, anywhere access to the tools, information, and resources that they need to support their education.
Loudoun County Public Schools is committed to ensuring our students are safe when working online. To help protect our students from harmful or objectionable material, all internet traffic on student devices is filtered through our internet content filters. This filtering is in place regardless of whether students are using their device at home, at school, or any other wireless network. As an extra layer of protection, LCPS is using a monitoring service to scan the contents of students’ email, Google Drive, and Microsoft OneDrive for inappropriate or concerning content. If content is flagged, it is reviewed and addressed in a means consistent with the level of concern.
Parents are given this guide with the device to review with their student(s) to learn the responsibilities and best practices of caring for the LCPS individual learning device.
